Red-hot Dodgers cap sweep of Mets with one-hitter

  • Chase Utley #26 of the Los Angeles Dodgers

Through his first 354 plate appearances this year, Taylor is hitting.313/.379/.534 with 13 home runs.

Ryu was limited to one major league appearance in 2015 and 2016 combined due to left shoulder woes.

"I don't think we will let that happen - because we don't want it to happen", he said.

Matz said he was having trouble working from the stretch, he lost his command and left pitches up. "It's going to be really fun when we get him back".

During the seven innings he played, Ryu gave up only one run and struck out eight batters. In five career starts against the Mets, Ryu is 3-0 with a 1.69 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 31 strikeouts in 32 innings.

"As I always said, command is important than velocity", he said.

Turner's caught stealing turned into a two-out stolen base when a video review determined he reached around Amed Rosario to evade the rookie shortstop's tag.

Cody Bellinger, who was in a 1-2 count at the time of the steal, worked a walk, after which Turner and Bellinger executed a double steal.

And another reason as to why Roberts is comfortable pulling out his guys early is because he has a strong shutdown bullpen that he trusts to turn to.

The Dodgers began their fantastic run of form on June 7, slugging a league-best 96 home runs during the stretch, and have won 12 of their past 13. Turner sent a solo drive to center off Sewald in the eighth, and Seager added a two-run homer into the second deck in right field against Fernando Salas in the ninth.

The Dodgers have an outside shot at 116 wins, the major league record for a season held by the 1906 Chicago Cubs in a 154-game season and the Seattle Mariners in 2001 in a 162-game season. "He seems enthusiastic. Of course, it's easy to be enthusiastic every day when you win. And that's all that matters".

"Dodgers have won their first six and they'll go for the season series sweep tonight just as soon as the network stooge down there says that it's okay to play baseball".

The Los Angeles Dodgers are chasing history and competing with one of the greatest teams the sport of baseball had ever seen.

Mets manager Terry Collins indicated that the lefty needs to push through even on days when he does not feel his best.

Los Angeles is 44-7 in their last 51 games overall and 13-3 in Maeda's last 16 starts while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall. "They obviously hit better than us and pitched better than us". The pitcher Steven Matz is rubbing up the ball, he's ready to go.

NOTES: Mets RF/1B Jay Bruce (stiff neck) sat out a second straight game. They, however, produced three runs from the start against the Mets, which Ryu said he had "very comfortable" pitching after that. Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (back) didn't play.

"It is history in the making", manager Dave Roberts said after Saturday's 7-4 win over the Mets, a victory powered by five home runs.

The Mets certainly need no more convincing that the Dodgers are a force to be reckoned with.

Matz almost got through the first facing the minimum as ex-Met Justin Turner was ruled out on a caught stealing after he hit into a fielder's choice.
